  • Heat oven to 375°F.

Spread 1/2 cup pasta sauce mixture onto bottom of 13x9-inch baking dish; top with layers of 3 noodles, 1 cup cottage cheese mixture, 1/2 cup mozzarella and 1 cup of the remaining pasta sauce mixture. Repeat layers. Top with remaining noodles and pasta sauce mixture; cover.
  • Bake 30 min. or until heated through. Top with remaining mozzarella; bake, uncovered, 5 min. or until melted. Let stand 5 min. before serving.


Substitute 2 cups frozen BOCA Ground Crumbles for the browned ground beef. Add to pasta sauce in saucepan along with the garlic and oregano; cook until heated through, stirring occasionally. Continue as directed.

Makeover - How We Did It

We've made over a traditional lasagna that results in a savings of 120 calories and 10g of total fat, including 6.5g of saturated fat, per serving. We replaced the sausage with extra-lean ground beef and decreased the amount, substituted cottage cheese for the ricotta cheese, decreased the Parmesan, and used KRAFT 2% Milk Shredded Mozzarella Cheese.

Make Ahead

Assemble lasagna as directed. Refrigerate up to 24 hours. When ready to serve, bake, covered, in 375°F oven 40 min. or until heated through.


Substitute 1 container (15 oz.) part-skim ricotta cheese for the cottage cheese.
